I've been searching for this single quote for years. Caught this documentary about 8 years ago and never forgot this one scene

I'd postulate that the ease of coding in both php4 and php5 may have held back the adoption of php5 rather than supported it, even tho Python 3 doesn't actually support that theory (citing different communities and use cases, altho I surely won't make a big effort at supported my postulation :D).

A spec is something I'd like to see HHVM consider, especially if HACK proves useful.
There's been a lot of buzz in the community lately around PHP and its future. The vast majority of this buzz has been distinctly positive, which is awesome to hear. There's been a lot of talk about PHP6 and what that might look like. There's been a lot of questions around HHVM and its role in ...

Some of the books on this topic (notably Head First Design Patterns) mention that the patterns are really similar if not the same. The point they make is that the intent differs between the patterns.

The overall idea (so says "the book") is to encapsulate change - to make application architecture more maintainable by encapsulation/abstracting the parts that change into easier to manage/change/add to areas of code.

This is more than managing state, but is definitely related. The use and management of state is definitely hard to reason tho. The DDD folks are going in a good direction with this.

Organizing how data changes is different from organizing how the structure changes, but you're right - they're related.

I didn't read Head First - can you elaborate on how it says the patterns are the same? Is it saying that they use similar techniques or something?

What's your take on unicode support in future PHP? As someone dealing with issues of UTF8 from email server, to php to database, I can feel a lot of pain!

I think it's a red-herring, and a very loaded feature which is why I didn't bring it up at all here.

Having unicode support in core would be awesome and would solve a lot of problems. But you don't need core support to do 99% of the things you need to do in the real world. The cases you need to work with UTF8, just use the INTL extension...

And going from DB to output is not hard, and typically doesn't involve any extensions (as htmlspecialchars is utf8 aware, as long as you properly pass the correct parameter).
